Final Fantasy XV is getting a patch on January 24th that will add some interesting new content. The patch will include additional items for the “Holiday Pack” and “Holiday Pack +” updates as well as a new feature that will allow players to have more freedom over taking pictures in the game. The Holiday Packs were released on December 22nd but for those that downloaded it this new patch will bring more content.

Both the free version of the “Holiday Pack” and “Holiday Pack +” brought new game plus to Final Fantasy XV enabling players to start a new game with data from a previously finished completed game. It also added social network site picture frames so players can share their in-game photos on social media surrounded by a fun frame.

These updates also included DLC with a ticket to the Moogle Chocobo Carnival that will begin on January 24th. In celebration of the festival, players with the “Holiday Pack” update can dress Noctis in a Chocobo-Moogle themed T-shirt. Those that purchased the “Holiday Pack +” can celebrate by putting Noctis in a mariachi-themed “Carnival Style” costume.

In addition to some Noctis-only costumes, this new patch will bring some exclusive “Holiday Pack” photo frames to display Prompto’s photography in. One of the biggest changes coming with this January update is some changes to the photography mechanic in the game called the “self-photographing feature”. After the 24th players will be able to take pictures outside of battle wherever and whenever they choose.

On January 24th, 2017 new costumes and photography frames for the “Holiday Pack” updates will be available. The patch will also begin the Moogle Chocobo Carnival and implement the “self-photographing feature”. Be sure to update Final Fantasy XV on the 24th to participate in the carnival and get the new feature.
